The Ringwood ice rink is closed for the season.
Inpatient skaters hopped over the fence while the ice was still forming, puncturing multiple holes into the liner as well, the borough's park and recreation department said on Facebook
"Unfortunately, we had some skaters who were not willing to wait until the ice was ready and climbed the fencing around the rink while it was closed. Not only was the still forming ice destroyed, but there were multiple holes put into the liner as well and it will have to be replaced."
Several residents commented on the post offering help.
Hi Rec Dept... any amount of volunteers that could help get it back online? I think a lot of folks may offer some help if that would mean our town can have a rink again for the winter.
This can be fixed with flex tape. There is a facebook group for backyard rinks (such as this) and repairing a damaged liner is not a difficult thing.
